The fun of TLAs

RAT = Ram-Air turbine, a little propeller-driven electrickery generator that pops out the engine fairing or pylon when the gennie attached to the engine stops producing power.

RAT = Rocket-Assisted Take-off (or Rocket Assisted Take Off if you want to be posh & use an FLA) - does what it says on the strap-on giant firework, uses rockets strapped to the aircraft to help lift it off the ground.

Oh, the fun you can have in a multi-disciplinary meeting when half the managers cannot resist talking in acronyms...
